Benedict Cumberbatch was actually featured in the latest issue of Vogue Magazine, and he opens up about his longterm relationship with ex-girlfriend Olivia Poulet, who he split up with in 2010.
He explains, "It happened very gradually, very mutually. We’re still very good friends. There was no acrimony. I love her, adore her, always will.”
He also spends time discussing his role as Julian Assange in 'The Fifth Estate', explaining, "I thought he should be more… not stiff, but like a guy who does a lot of yoga. It’s that strength where people look weak but their core is strong. He’s incredibly poised. Back straight. His head leans to the side. There’s this thing about him being very reserved and austere. I wanted him to be a little bit more like a rock star. There is something almost boyish – a joy about him. I wanted him to smile.” He also raves about Meryl Streep, who he got to work with in the upcoming 'August: Osage County'.
Although there's no guarantee, Cumberbatch looks like he's in a prime position to possibly get nominated for an Oscar once awards season arrives. He's already nominated for an Emmy award for his work in Sherlock, and his roles in the Fifth Estate and August: Osage County could lead to several other nominations.
